HUG - here for all audio enthusiasts

INTRODUCTION- PLEASE READ FIRST TO UNDERSTAND THIS FORUM!

"This Harbeth User Group (HUG) is the Manufacturer's own managed forum dedicated to natural sound, realisable by controlling the confounding variables between tthe microphone and the listeners' ears.

For example, the design of and interaction between the hifi amplifier and its speaker load can and potentially will alter the sound balance of what you hear. To reproduce the sounds captured by the recording microphones, as Harbeth speakers are designed to do, you would naturally select system components (sources, electronics, cables and so on) that do not color the sound before it reaches the speakers.

Identifying components for their system neutrality should, logically, start with the interpretation and analysis of their technical, objective performance, as any and every deviation from a measurably flat frequency response at any point along the serial chain from microphone to ear is very likely to cause the total system to have an audible sonic personality. That includes the contribution of the listening room itself.

HUG specialises in making complex technical matters simple to understand, aiding the identification of audio components likely to maintain a faithful relationship between the recorded sound and the sound you hear. With our heritage of natural sound, HUG cannot be really be expected to guide in the selection, approval, endorsement or even discussion of equipment that is intend to introduce a significantly personalised sound to the audio signal chain. For that you should do your own research and above all, make the effort to visit an Authorised Dealer and listen to your music at your loudness on your loudspeakers through the various electronics offered there. There is no on-line substitute for that time investment in a dealer's showroom.

If you desire to intentionally tune your system sound to your personal taste, please consider carefully how much you should rely upon the subjective opinions of strangers. Their hearing acuity and taste will be different to yours, as will be their motives and budget, their listening distance, listening loudness and listening room treatment, not necessarily leading to appropriate equipment selection and listening satisfaction for you.

Alternatively, if faithfully reproducing the sound intended by the composer, score, conductor and musicians over your speakers is your audio dream, then understanding something of the issues likely to fulfill that objective is what this forum has been helping with since 2006. Welcome!"

    I have found the problem . Im sorry it's my fault. I pluged a Zu Bok power cord. I din't know that afect that much for imcompatibility. The LFD run faster with it. Better stay with simple cable from the boxe. Hard to beleive, even others power cord i tested, it's din't match. So when u move your equipements, make sure it's still the same power cord for your LFD.
    After few hours tested , My wife are in love with it. Me to. it's superior to my Cronus. But the sound from my Cronus is more transparent and deeper, that touch the soul. Maybe it's tube effect. LFD Le IV, Voice presentation, and back ground instruments are clear with punch of the base, that why it's super. I think i will keep the Cronus for Midrange listening, like Classiscal, just need to get a new Harbeth compact and an LP.

    Thank for you guys time.
    The world of HiFi is soo big, 2 many speakers, 2 many AMPs, and Cables, the hard thing is the compatibility one with others... than the ears.. tube or SS.

      Good to hear that you've solved the problem even though i 've tried a few power cords with the LE III but found no change in speed but only a very very subtle difference in the overall sound.

      What you need most now is acclimatisation to the LE IV's forthright presentation. Its neither overly warm, sweet or subdued or laidback or forward....but as Gene Rubin & Sam Tellig says, it just sounds right! To me at least, my LE III not only sounds right but when combined with the wonderful SHL-5 simply takes the hifi setup out of the equation, leaving only the music where it should be.
